Thanks for the constructive criticism! In TT at least at high levels, supports, at least in their truest form, stop existing.
They're replaced by champions who can be played as something other than a support but who have supportive skill sets IE Nunu, Nautilus, Blitzcrank, Leona, Zyra, etc.
Regardless of the pick however, building like a support isn't really viable. IE no shurel into aegis > FH > etc.
The closest thing to a true support team I know about is Nunu Yorick Tryndamere. Tryndamere farms the jungle and gets huge, nunu blood boils him for max AS after Trynd gets his Youmuu, and the Yorick ulti makes sure that Trynd kills the enemy team regardless of CC/death. That's really the only comp I can think of where there are characters whose only real role is to support a carry.
